America a.k.a. Amerika (Newsreel #?)

Against the background of the escalation of the war in Vietnam, AMERICA documents the development of the anti-war movement on the home front. Conversations with Vietnam veterans, young teenagers, and African American militants contextualizes footage that graphically depicts the heightened incidents of mass protest and police repression.

Reviews
"The guerrilla newsreel America a.k.a. Amerika (30 min.) annotates the Eve of Destruction as anti-war teenagers and African American militants talk tough and battle the police, at times to a rock ā€˜nā€™ roll beat."
- J. Hoberman, Wounded Galaxies: 1968 Festival & Symposium, Indiana University Cinema
